First Church will observe Bless Our Schools Sunday on September 20 during the 8:30 a.m. worship service.

Every year on the third Sunday in September, churches around the world take this special time to pray specifically for the schools, teachers, staff, and students in their congregation. As a result, many are blessed, feel bolstered in prayer and ready to stand firm in Christ for the new school year!

Bless Our Schools Sunday is sponsored by Moms in Prayer, “Moms in Prayer International impacts children and schools worldwide for Christ by gathering mothers to pray.” Visit the website at for many resources, such as prayer guides and prayer calendars to use in your personal prayer time. In addition, feel free to send prayer requests for specific schools, students, teachers and staff to Tina Eaton at These requests will be prayed over by our Moms in Prayer group that meets on Monday evenings.
